The Ghana Music Industry has seen less of attention and support to the side of the Up and Coming Musicians. Over the period, all attention has been shifted to the already established names.
Years passed has seen several complains from emerging artistes on bases of recognition among others.
With the birth of Emerging Music Awards, the several cry and rants over the period promises to come to an end.
Last Friday saw the launch of the Maiden edition of the Emerging Music Awards (EMA) by Kusstar Entertainment at the Global Cinema, in Weija.
Speaking in an interview with The Publisher, Board member for Emerging Music Award and Ace radio presenter, Dr.Cann said, ”The aim of Emerging Music Awards is to recognize up and coming musicians, who do not get the needed recognition at the already well-established and household name award events.”
According to him, the awards scheme will look out for talented Up and coming musicians who are determined to take music as their profession but not anybody who can sing or rap.
The launch attracted a lot of personalities including CEO for Kusstar entertainment, Cwesi Oteng Musician, Kaywa Music Producer , Mr. Fred Kyei Mensah Board Chairman, Dr. Cann Board Member, CEO for DKB productions David Bolten, CEO for Speech Productions Enock Agyapong, CEO for Zionite Entertainment Mr. Abudulai Sakra Board Member, Nana Romeo Board Member, Afia Papabi Board Member, DJ Premiere Board Member, among others.
According to Organizers, event date would be communicated to the public soon. Organizers further encouraged all up and coming artists across all regions in Ghana to file for nominations via their website.
